Cost of Attendance

Listed below is the Law School Cost of Attendance for the 2020-2021 academic year.

In determining a student's budget, the University uses Bureau of Labor Statistics figures to estimate expenditures for the nine-month academic year. In the case of a student with dependent(s), the family's additional actual costs, within reason, will be used to determine the student budget. Such reasonable additional costs generally are about $4,000 per dependent.

Some students may have additional personal expenses not included in the standard budget. Examples of such additional expenses are medical expenses not covered by insurance and additional childcare or day care expenses. More information regarding cost of attendance appeals can be found in the Law Financial Aid Student Handbook.
